For anyone in NY, I’ll be speaking November 1, 2010 at 42 West 18th Street, New York at 5:30pm on transitioning into making films as a still photographer. During this evening’s presentation, I’ll show work from India, Bangladesh and Sierra Leone and how photographers can find a niche in today’s changing world of photojournalism.With media outlets going through rapid transitions, this is a perfect time to find opportunity in technological changes to tell the stories to new audiences once thought unreachable. If you are a photographer interested in how to create memorable photographic stories and multimedia presentations, this talk is meant to inspire you.
